The Detecting Duchess
by Kate Parker
I enjoy reading Kate’s book if nothing else for the setting. She has a way of describing the settings so that you feel like you are right there along with the characters…

Those looking for an exciting caper, that doesn’t let up until the last page, will greatly enjoy this book!

Ms. Parker takes us back in time as only she can. Her words paint wonderful pictures in your mind of Victorian England as we follow Georgia as she goes to society balls and social calls and investigates. I totally escaped into this one.

Kate Parker filled this book with a twisting tale of money, greed, suspense and characters that have such personality. The characters alone felt as though they were coming to life on the pages.
I love this book set in Victorian England and the adventure it puts Georgia on.
This is a historical cozy mystery, with a brave main character that doesn’t fear to face a murderer or an harpy, go Georgia!
This series is well written and will keep the reader glued to the books until the very end.

The story is captivating and filled with twist and turns keeping the reading struggling to figure out the mystery.

The only thing standing between Georgia and her fairy-tale wedding is a murder. Or two.
When a young woman pleads for help from Georgia Fenchurch in locating a missing Crown investigator, Georgia resists. Her wedding is only a week away. Before she can say no, she’s knocked to the ground by an assailant attempting to kill the young woman.
Georgia now feels she must help. She soon finds herself up to her wedding veil in stolen treasure and coded letters. With the Duke of Blackford’s help, Georgia follows a trail of missing men and dead bodies. Every victim had one thing in common – a desire to possess a fortune in gold.
In between the society balls and social calls of late Victorian London, Georgia works on her last case before the big day. Will she stop a ruthless killer in time? Or will Georgia find getting to the altar on time is going to be murder?
Kate began reading Agatha Christie mysteries and the Nancy Drew books while her classmates were reading Dick and Jane. She particularly likes historical mysteries and the feeling of time travel a good historical book can give the reader. Combined with her love of late Victorian to World War II architecture and fashions, she found an outlet for the stories and characters that fill her head by writing The Victorian Bookshop Mysteries and The Deadly series, as well as taking part in the Christmas Revels anthologies.
